Doctor Who Season Four


PREMISE: An alternate Doctor Who season four. In which the Doctor and the Master have dysfunctional adventures in time and space, Martha becomes a fully qualified doctor, Leo Jones wonders what all the fuss is about, the Torchwood team recounts Himalayan hijinks, and Lucy Saxon refuses to let the averted end of the world sideline her.

DISCLAIMER: Doctor Who belongs to the BBC. I am making absolutely no money from this and am losing valuable time sleeping. It's all in good fun.

SPOILER WARNING: This is written as an alternate version of Doctor Who season four, not only because I am not psychic and have no idea what the people in charge are cooking up for the real season, but also because the entire premise of this project is the Doctor and the Master travelling together, which we are not about to see on daytime TV. In the spirit of this, be warned of SPOILERS for the end of season three. In fact, if you haven't watched season three, turn back now.

RATING WARNING: As far as ratings go, assume that this is more on the Torchwood than the Doctor Who end of things. Of course, I'm of the opinion that David Tennant and John Simm manange to cram more sexual tension into five seconds on screen together than the combined Torchwood cast usually manage in an entire epsiode, but, that said, this project contains vague onscreen sexing. And casual hookups. And other adult things. Although no more intense creepy darkness than you find in the average Who episode, really.

First: wow, that was fun.

And seriously, thank you, everyone who was following along with this. Not only for the compliments and encouragement (and occasional tiny edits), but because I didn't have to pimp this anywhere, and it still got the readership that it did-- which means you guys were pimping it out on your LJs, and that absolutely thrills me. Thank you.

For the curious, some statistics: snipCollapse )

And lastly, to answer pretty much the only FAQ I've gotten: no, there isn't going to be a season five. It's for any number of reasons, among them that I feel this project has sort of taken my soul and I need to spend a bit of time collecting the scattered fragments of my sanity, and also because I took advantage of the only two weeks of summer when I wasn't busy, and now I will be again-- but mostly it's because the story's complete. I've had my fun with this universe and I feel all right about Last of the Time Lords now, and it's time to move on.

That's not to say I won't be writing, though. Don't bother watching this space, but watch my normal writing journal if you like; I don't think I'm finished messing about with Doctor Who quite yet.

Love to you all.

And we're done. A few final notes to follow, once I've had a little bit of time to recover from writing this much, but for now, enjoy the finale.
